Ikebukuro Life Safety Learning Center東京消防庁池袋防災館

Experience Hall / Accommodation Experience (Training) Facility

This facility where you can experience authentic disaster prevention in an urban area is located a five-minute walk from Ikebukuro Station. With a tour-type program led by an instructor, you can go on three types of experiences: earthquakes, smoke and fire extinguishing. The fire extinguishing corner where you can experience fighting a realistic fire projected on a large screen uses recycled water. You can experience discharging water using indoor fire hydrants and standpipes that you do not normally use. Groups of 10 or more people can also experience the disaster training drill corner, where you create roads, rivers and danger information on a map, allowing you to recheck your ability to manage disasters and sense danger.

          Tokyo Main Areas


          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It's hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world's tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you're in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
